Come and join OutdoorLads at the Climbing wall at West View Leisure Centre, Preston! It offers a wide range of Climbing walls for all abilities - with excellent facilities for beginners. 

West View Leisure centre provides a dedicated climbing hall with a number of different climbing walls, from a beginners / disability slab and Scramble ridge, to challenging overhanging lead walls, as well as a dedicated Bouldering Section and Top-Roping walls. There are over 55 lines of climbing available with grades for all abilities any climber will enjoy the routes here. It is also a great place to start climbing, so if you want to take the step into the world of climbing this is the place to try it.
Indoor climbing centres offer the challenges of climbing that you'll find on natural outdoor structures - simply indoors! It's a fun way to stay fit, you'll quickly begin to develop arm, back, finger and core strength as a result of the many reaches and holds that are repeated through to the completion of a climb. It's a great body workout!

This event is for members of all levels of experience and ability and all are welcome to come along to any of the sessions.

For your first time climbing with us, especially if you are a novice climber and think you need a guided session, please contact the event leader in advance to let him know what your skills and experience are.

To come along, you will need to register via the event page, and to climb you will need to pay an entry fee directly to the centre when you arrive, Please check their web-site for details. 

It is important that all members sign up through the event page to make sure the event leader has all information of the members attending.

DO I NEED A GUIDED SESSION?

If you can answer Yes to the following three questions:

1. Can you tie the correct knots (double figure of 8 and stopper knot)?

2. Can you fit a harness correctly?

3. Can you belay correctly?

Then you do not need a guided session from the event leader.

If you answer No to any of the questions then don't worry this means you will need a guided session from the event leader, who will happily take you through everything you need to know to climb safely.

HOW MANY GUIDED SESSIONS WILL I NEED?

Typically after two guided sessions you will be ready to take a short test with climbing centre staff to confirm your competence to climb unsupervised. 
This will also mean you will now also be able to sign up to any of the other 'experienced climbers' only events listed on the website.

If you progress at a slower rate then don't worry, you will just need to sign up to further 'beginners' or 'all abilities' events where the event leader(s) will happily instruct you until you can safely climb unsupervised. 

Don't worry if you do not progress at the same time as others, everybody's journey to becoming a climber is different and our leaders make sure your own journey is set at the best pace for you.
